Trent Reznor Pulls Another Radiohead

"Discipline" sounds like it could've been on last May's Year Zero, which makes sense since around the time of its release, a publicist from Trent's former record label told us he'd recorded Zero and its follow-up simultaneously; whatever this forthcoming album is, we bet it's been finished for over a year. So, he tested the waters by making a quickie LP of ambient instrumentals, and when even that proved wildly successful, he decided to try it with a pop album. Smart guy. And even more so because he seems to be doing this as many times as he possibly can before everybody gets sick of these surprise Internet-release things.
